Brief Answer:
A few suggestions, we need to consider infections as well

Detailed Answer:
Hello ma'am and welcome.

Thank you for writing to us.

I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help. I understand your cause for concern but as the burning sensation was elicited after ejaculation and not immediately on penetration we should suspect :

+Sexually transmitted infections
+pH imbalance
+Lack of adequate lubrication

I would at this point of time recommend a few things, although it may be too early to detect the cause, we can still go about the following:

+Urine analysis
+Urine culture and sensitivity examination
+Vaginal swab test
+Discuss with your partner about his sexual status and whether he has been tested recently
+Avoid sexual contact in all forms, including masturbation
+Mix 1 tbsp of baking soda in a glass of water and have several times a day
+Drink cranberry juice as tolerated
+Drink plenty of water
+Change your inner wear regularly

I hope you find my response helpful. Please do not hesitate to write back to me for any further clarifications, I am always here to help.

Best wishes.
